Unknown924 Posted May 11, 2013 Share Posted May 11, 2013 (edited) Catalysts and reactors currently provide a significant upgrade with no middle ground between upgraded and non-upgraded. The purpose of this idea is to let players get incremental upgrades by playing the game without having to lucky with the alert system. Name: Orokin Fragment Use: Increases the mod slots for a warframe or weapon. Each fragment provides one mod slot and up to 30 maybe installed in any item. Once the limit of 30 is reached, the fragments become a catalyst or reactor as appropriate. Using a catalyst/reactor destroys all fragments in the item when it is applied. Limits: The bonus mod slots provided by fragments may not exceed the current level of the item. Ex Level 10 item with 15 fragments gets 10 bonus slots. How to Acquire: Free: One fragment as a first win of the day reward. This lets people work towards better warframes or weapons as they play without the jump a reactor/catalyst provides. By limiting it to a first win of the day reward it gives players a reason to spend money if they don't want to spend a month on each warframe/weapon(or rely on getting lucky). Store: Fragment Pack with 15 fragments for 10 platinum. This keeps the price ratio of 30 points at max level for the 20 platinum a catalyst/reactor costs. This is for people that get impatient and don't want to waste the fragments they have used by putting a full catalyst/reactor in. Any thoughts or comments? EDIT - Further thoughts Replace current reactor/catalyst alerts with fragment alerts that give 15 or less but are more common. The idea behind this is to distribute the power of a potato over multiple alerts. By only giving fractions of a potato's power, there can be more alerts. More alerts mean than people are more likely to be able to do one. It also means that people miss less if they are not able to do an alert. This will let people feel they are getting something and making some progress. Thoughts for frequency and value of fragment alerts 2x current, 15 fragments: This might still be a bit too rare 30x current, 1 fragment: This seems way to common. 6x current, 5 fragments: This seems like a good middle ground. Perhaps lower to 4-5x to reflect people getting fragments from first wins Using fragments instead of potatoes should have a minimal impact on DE since they are not giving away entire reactors/catalysts.
